More about Word Bee

I'm Emma, aka Word Bee. The idea of providing a transcription service came about as a happy accident. I was on maternity leave from my job as a primary school teacher with my baby girl, Clementine, when a good friend contacted me. She had seen an urgent request from one of her academic colleagues in need of a transcriptionist. I took on this initial project as a means of supplementing my maternity income. However, it was in doing this that I discovered my passion for transcription and set about providing an excellent standard of service.

I love being immersed in the data as it takes me back to my academic roots. I successfully completed a PhD in Sociology, involving qualitative interviews, before becoming a teacher. Fine-tuning each transcript before submitting it brings out the teacher in me. Hunting down correct the spelling of names and unfamiliar technical terms fulfils a nerdy, conscientious side of my personality, and I thrive under the pressure of working against the clock to meet tight deadlines.

I have now expanded my operation by sourcing and training a small team of excellent freelance transcriptionists, enabling me to deliver on larger projects within a tighter timescale. I personally do a final proofread and edit of all transcripts before they are signed off as complete so that I know I would be happy to put my name to it. I really do take pride in what I do, and my goal is to provide the standard of service that I would be delighted to recommend to a friend or colleague.
